Frank Gore Thread

I had no idea that some people actually think that Willis was a quitter.

"You've seen me break my hand on Sunday, have surgery on Monday and play on Thursday with a cast on," Willis said. "But there's something about these feet. And those are what made me who I am. They had you all saying, 'Wow, where'd he come from?'

"I know I no longer have it in these feet to go out there and give you guys that kind of 'Wow.'"

"As much as I'd love to win a Super Bowl and to bring number six back here, I have to be honest," Willis said. "I have to tell y'all that if I don't have what I know I need to give to my teammates and the organization the best chance to win, then I can't be out there doing that.

"And to be sitting on the sideline just collecting a paycheck, I feel like that would be wrong. So I stand up here today with that conviction. I understand the magnitude of what I'm doing today."

Gore has said many times he wants to be a RB scout. I hope we hire him.

Stubbed toe ≠ Turf toe.

I guess Jack Lambert and Jonathan Ogden are quitters too.

Definitely something to follow. Not a knock to other greats, but I think Frank Gore would be very dedicated to the job. While I think other guys are interested in helping out the 49ers (or another team), I don't think they have an interest in putting in the hours year round because scouting, coaching, etc IS a full time job.

Val is just mad because in his heart he knows the Braves 1995 championship wasnt legit because it came in a partial season.

I mean... I would have no problem with Gore picking out our RBs in the future.
